I really have an interest in becoming a hospice nurse but I do like not having the typical 8-5 job. Do they have alternative schedules such as evenings? Or I could do 7-7 with a longer lunch hour? Just curious what the options are for most hospice nurses that are home hospice.

Thanks!

I'm sure that your local home hospice agencies have different options. There are on-call nurses at night, and certainly not all house calls need to be made between 8am and 5pm. But not knowing your potential employment options it's hard to say specifically. Good luck.

I agree with JBMmom--talk with your local hospice agency and find out what positions are available. My guess is they would be thrilled to have someone who WANTS to work off-shift hours!! Good luck and let us know how things work out for you!!
